No Gambling

There is no gambling or betting or wagering at Eliters. No Cash is involved in all Eliters Tournaments.

The newest US Federal legislation of September 30, 2006 -- H.R.4411 "Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006" Sec. 5362 defines illegal betting or wagering as including "the purchase of a chance or opportunity to win a lottery or other prize (which opportunity to win is predominantly subject to chance)".

All Eliters.com (the Site) tournaments are based predominantly upon the players' skill, not chance.

Although Eliters is not involved in Cash Tournaments, and the distinctions between skill-based games and games of chance are clear, there are a few states within the U.S. that have not yet permitted skill-based games to be played for cash or prizes. Therefore, the following Eligibility terms will be adhered to:

d) be physically located in a U.S. state in which participation in the tournament you select on the Site is unrestricted by law; and

e) at all times abide by these Terms and Conditions.

Based on these 50 sets of laws, the Site DOES NOT offer games requiring a cash entry fee ("Cash Competitions") to residents of the following states:

Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Montana, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee and Vermont.

Additionally, the Site DOES NOT offer card game Cash Competitions if you access the Site from Indiana or Maine. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW.

Change ID - Elite User Name ChangeLast Update: 7/2/2014

fiogf49gjkf0d

Premium Members may change their Elite User Name (ID) after one week of the last change. You may change your User Name at Change ID.

In order to play in any League Tourney; Players must register in the Play Site accommodating the Game for this specific League. Players may register any ID they like in the Play Sites; however, it is highly advisable to have Your Play Site IDs identical to, or the nearest to, your Eliters ID.

Eliters User Names may not be changed:

  • If the ID was withdrawn or banned or removed for any reason.
  • If the ID was changed in the past 7 days.
  • If the Member is registered or playing in a Tourney or Challenge.
  • If the Member is a TD and has an unfinished Tourney.
  • If the New ID is already registered or taken. This is why you will not be able at any time to merge 2 IDs even if they are used in 2 different Leagues or Play Sites.

By changing to a new ID, the following actions will be taken:

  • Your Summary Player Stats (Tourneys, Victories, Matches) at each League will be transferred to the new ID.
  • Your Summary TD Stats (Position, Tourneys Hosted, Total Players Participation) at each League will be transferred to the new ID.
  • Your Previous Achievements in the Book or Records at each League, and in the Hall of Fame, will be transferred to the new ID.

  • Your Premium Membership, YEPs Balance and US Dollar Balance will be transferred to the new ID.
  • Your Detailed Transactions and Records of Tourney, Matches and YEPs will be DELETED.

  • You will lose the right to play in the upcoming TOC, or MDC, or Invite Tourneys, or Events, if earned in the old ID.
  • Your old Eliters ID will continue to be Reserved in our system for 2-3 months, and you won't be able to access it.


Family Members and HousematesLast Update: 12/16/2011

fiogf49gjkf0d

Eliters recognizes that in many cases more than one family member (or two or more people who share a household or an office) may have an Elite User Name on the same computer or at separate computers sharing networked Internet access. Also, sometimes people who work together or play out of Internet clubs and such may share network access. We welcome such extended participation, but certain rules must be adhered to:

  • Users sharing a single computer or network or IP address are not permitted to enter or play in the same Tournament. Basically, this means that if, for instance, you log on to Elite from a friend’s house; you cannot both compete in the same tournament.


  • Family members or those sharing a household may not enter the same Tournament as Partners in a PS (Player Select). However, if they are not using the same computer or network or IP address, they may enter the same Tournament as Single Separate Players (1x1 or 1x3) or with other Partners (2x2), and might even be partnered in an SS (System Select) Tournament.


  • Each family member should have a separate Elite ID. They may not share the same ID. In this case, 2 active IDs might be using the same computer, and this requires them to notify the VP Member Relations by submitting a Ticket using the Category Accounts >> UserName, so they will not be considered as violating the above rule.

While we understand that such activity is usually innocent in nature, we nevertheless must be vigilant that individuals seeking an “edge” not be allowed to play multiple IDs off against each other to increase the chances of a tournament win. Therefore, all players are expected to follow the above policy, and repeated violations will result in summary banning of ALL Members involved, whether they meet each other in the tourney or not.



Multiple IDs - Premium MembersLast Update: 7/2/2014

fiogf49gjkf0d

Premium Members are allowed to have as many Elite IDs as they want. However, it is not permitted to maintain more than ONE active ID playing at the same League (Game / PlaySite - Example: Backgammon / Pogo).

Exceptions to the above:

  • A Premium Member may use 2 different Elite IDs in the same League, one as a TD and one as a Player. However, they cannot register to play using both IDs in the same Tourney.

  • Each family member should have a separate Elite ID. They may not share the same ID. In this case, 2 active IDs might be using the same computer, and this requires them to notify the VP Member Relations by submitting a Ticket using the Category Accounts >> UserName, so they will not be considered as violating the above rule.

  • Premium Members who run out of YEPs (YEPs balance below 50 YEPs) and choose not to purchase another Premium Membership, are creating new IDs so that they may continue playing tournaments. This is acceptable, as long as they have the Premium ID fully dormant and only 1 active Guest ID.

Any Member violating the above rules by attempting to maintain more than one active ID in the same League will be given the option to withdraw one of the IDs, otherwise the Admin will decide, at its own discretion, which ID to purge from that specific League.

Any Premium Member violating the above rules by attempting to create and maintain excessive numbers of IDs will be considered cheating and will be banned permanently from Eliters, all Stats will be deleted, including YEPs and US$ account, and will be charged with all YEPs earned illegally and damages caused.

Please remember that you cannot merge any IDs, and you cannot change your ID to another ID already registered in Eliters even if it belongs to you.

This does not apply on your Play Sites IDs; as you can have a different ID in each Play Site, and in case you have any change in the Play Site ID; you can Edit this Specific Play Site ID at Edit Play IDs



Multiple IDs - GuestsLast Update: 2/6/2014

fiogf49gjkf0d

Guest Members are not permitted to maintain more than one ID to be used in all Leagues. This means that no additional ID will be allowed if the Guest cannot get the same name in all Play Sites. The only exception is Ex Premium Members; becoming Guest - Bronze; they will be allowed to have 2 IDs as described and restricted in Help Topic 1304.

At the same time, Guest Members who run out of YEPs and choose not to purchase a Premium Membership are creating new IDs so that they may continue playing tournaments.

Because excessive ID creation leads to a strain on the database and YEPs inflation, Eliters does not allow possession of multiple IDs by the same person. If you create a new ID to get more YEPs, you must withdraw your previous ID. Multiple IDs are subject to purging without warning. You may lose ALL your IDs if you play more than one of them actively.

IMPORTANT: For this reason, when a family member or friend or colleague creates an ID on your computer or on a shared ISP account, you must contact the VP Member Relations by submitting a Ticket using the Category Accounts >> UserName, and request an exemption from this rule. The VP Member Relations at his own discretion may grant exemption up to a maximum of 3 exemptions.

Any Guest Member violating the above rules by attempting to create and maintain excessive numbers of IDs will be banned permanently from Eliters, all Stats will be deleted, including YEPs and US$ account, and will be charged with all YEPs earned illegally and damages caused.



Email AddressLast Update: 12/16/2011

fiogf49gjkf0d

All members are required to provide Eliters with a functional Email address, so we may contact them on any matter related to their Elite Membership. 

Eliters will not sell or rent Email addresses to anyone. We keep these addresses solely so that Elite Administration can contact members when needed, especially to announce for Events or for special offers and bonuses.

Members are required to update their email whenever there is a change. It is to the Member’s advantage to keep his/her email updated because: 

  • Otherwise s/he will not be able to request a lost password, as the password will be sent automatically to the email registered at Eliters 
  • S/he will not be able to receive any Admin communication, notifications of special events, or support messages. 

The use of a false, inaccurate, or expired email address will result in:

  • For Guest Members, purging of the account without notice. 
  • For Premium Members, if it is necessary to send a warning notice to any premium member and the notice is returned as undeliverable, this will result in an immediate freeze of the Member Account. 


ID Removal - PurgingLast Update: 2/5/2014

fiogf49gjkf0d

In order to continue to maintain our streamlined database, Guest Memberships will expire if the Guest is inactive for 90 or more days. The expiration will result in freezing the Membership. However, the Member ID, Stats and YEPs balance will remain in the database for an additional 90 days to allow the Member to upgrade to a Premium Membership.  If, after the above time limits, the Member has failed to upgrade his/her Membership,  the Member ID will be purged completely. 

  • When Gold, Platinum or Diamond Membership expires; they will be converted to Silver Membership valid for 1 year.
  • When Silver Membership expires; they will be converted to Special Guest Status - Bronze Membership valid for 6 years; after which; if Active; they will be converted to Regular Guests, otherwise, they will be purged  completely.

Premium Members (Silver, Gold, Platinum or Diamond) will never be purged for inactivity and, so long as they continue to maintain their Premium Membership, they will have their complete stats available to be reinstated as soon as they become active again.

However, in order not to overload the Database with inactive Players, Members will be removed from any League if they have 0 Matches played after 3 Months of joining the League, or Less than 20 Matches in their Stats, and were inactive in that League for 12 Months. They may re Join any League anytime later.

The above rules do not apply in the case of Banned or Expelled Members for any reason including Rules violations or use of Multiple IDs – the Member IDs will lose all accounts balances and benefits as well as Player’s Stats and will never be allowed to re register.



ID Removal - WithdrawingLast Update: 6/18/2012

fiogf49gjkf0d

Members may need to withdraw their ID completely from Eliters. This could be for a multiple of reasons, including the need to clear the way for registering a new ID without being considered having Multiple IDs.

All Members will be allowed to withdraw their membership from Eliters anytime, if they are not registered or still playing in a Tourney.

Withdrawing will result in Freezing the Membership and losing all Player Stats, Premium Membership benefits, and YEPs and US$ balances. However, the Member ID will remain in the database but may not be used again.

Eliters may consider, in exceptional cases, reinstatement of Premium Members, against a charge of 2000 YEPs.

Players may also need to withdraw from a specific League, either because they do not intend to play in that League anymore, or to have a fresh start in that League, or to keep his/her ID just in active Leagues.



YEPs (Your Elite Points)Last Update: 1/25/2009

fiogf49gjkf0d

Eliters is proud to offer you rewards for your support of the League and your proficiency at Tournaments; you will have a visible and valuable marker of this.

You can use YEPs mainly to pay the fees required to join any Elite Tournament in any League. Read more on What to do with YEPs?

  • By Transaction Group (All, Tourneys, Challenges, EDS, Hosting, and Other)
  • By Debit and Credit amounts (YEPs IN and OUT)

Are there any restrictions on the YEPs Program?Last Update: 2/5/2014

fiogf49gjkf0d

  • YEPs cannot be transferred between Members, except:
    • From TDs to Members as Tournament Bonuses.
    • From Admin to TDs as TD Bonuses.
    • Monthly allowed Transfers from Gold, Platinum and Diamond Members to Other Members.
       
  • YEPs are forfeited in the event your account is purged, removed, or withdrawn.

Caution:The solicitation of YEPs or Membership from other Eliters, whether in the lobbies, game tables, or by IM/email, is expressly forbidden. This makes the Member being solicited very uncomfortable. Occasional, “joking” references will be overlooked.



Eliters ClubsLast Update: 8/28/2005

Eliters has made available for its members a number of official Clubs: one for each individual League, one for each individual Group, a “General” Club for Eliters-wide communication, and restricted Clubs for TDs and Administrators where they may discuss Leagues business and policies. The Clubs are official Eliters sites and they are governed by certain rules that are consistent with broader Eliters Policy and will be strictly enforced.

The purpose of the Clubs is twofold: they are a place to dispense information to the community and promote discussion of Eliters-related issues, and they are intended as a "social" gathering-place, fostering a sense of extended community among Eliters Members. The clubs are open to extended discussion on virtually any topic (See Topic 1802 for restrictions).

Eliters has provided very powerful tools for posting to and navigating Eliters Clubs:

  • You can select the Club you wish to check from a Drop Down List; also you may check all Leagues Clubs using one click.
  • On the main Club page, you are proivided with a Message List showing the Message number, the subject, the author, and date.
  • You may Post a New Message or Replay to another Message with one click, the message will show your ID, and if it is a reply to another message the author and number of this message.
  • You can Delete the message after posting it, and type a new one.
  • You can Search for any message using the Message Number.
  • You can Search all messages for a Keyword or Multiple Keywords.
  • You can see a list of all or Direct Replies to the message.

Categories of Unacceptable Clubs PostsLast Update: 10/29/2006

fiogf49gjkf0d
While Eliters reserves the right to delete any post or thread, the following categories encompass the majority of all deleted posts:

  • Posts containing profanity and/or lewd or suggestive language.

    We are not going to delete posts because somebody says “damn”, but we will not allow vile and offensive displays of gutter language.

  • Posts containing negative comments regarding specific individuals or groups.

    There are always at least two sides to an issue, and no reader of any post can be assumed to be acquainted with the intricacies of the issues raised.

    For this reason, civility alone dictates that there be no “finger-pointing”.

    If you have a problem with a TD, you should write to the League’s HA, and if the matter is not resolved at the League level, you may report it to the Staff Relations Director.

    If you have a problem with another Elite Member, you should write to VP Member Relations.

    At no time should such issues be aired in a public forum, it is unfair to those accused and disruptive of our goals as a League, which include attempting to resolve all disputes as fairly and unemotionally as possible.

    In a related vein, we will have to delete all posts defending other Members or trying to counter an attack on another individual. While we understand that it can be frustrating to see accusations of misbehaviour directed at friends you believe to be honorable, the Clubs cannot be a forum for the defense of individuals, because it is inconsistent with the rule that we cannot attack individuals. Also, it is our experience that such defenses frequently backfire by further publicizing the accusation itself.

  • Posts announcing withdrawals or resignations.

    Posts announcing withdrawals or resignations in the General Club will be deleted. If someone has personal issues that prevent them from playing or hosting and wants to post in the league they are involved, without pointing fingers or attacking anyone, that will be allowed. 
     
    This Club does not exist to indulge our egos. It is not possible to make everyone happy all the time. If you are unhappy for any reason, there are channels to go through, and you will be heard. 
     
    Any Club message by any Member announcing his/her withdrawal/resignation publicly, attacking anyone or setting forth a personal agenda, and any replies to such messages will be deleted.

  • Posts containing advertising or solicitation or links to other sites.

    This should be self-explanatory. We do not want our clubs to be inundated with commercial or quasi-commercial spams, nor do we think it is constructive to allow our members to solicit funds from each other publicly, no matter how worthy the cause.

    Since we cannot investigate all Sites or Products to judge their safety and seriousness, or check all solicitations to judge their "respectability", we allow none.


Code of ConductLast Update: 5/14/2010

fiogf49gjkf0d

Eliters was founded with the specific goal of establishing a league that was governed by principles of civility and good sportsmanship. We take the maintenance of these standards very seriously, as this is what sets us apart from other established leagues on the Net. Friendly people and clean fun is what Eliters is all about. There are other leagues better suited to aggressive, in-your-face play and behavior.

Our tournament Directors and other Staff are specifically instructed to take as a high priority the maintenance of discipline in our game lobbies and at our game tables. By far the majority of our players have gravitated to us because they have learned that they can rely on Eliters to keep them from being subjected to aggressive, boorish behavior and unsportsmanlike conduct.

Accordingly, the first principle of Eliters is:

Players are expected to conduct themselves in a civil manner and treat all others with respect. Failure to do so is cause for disqualification from a Tourney. Repeated unacceptable behavior is cause for removal from the League.

In a general sense, this is what we expect of all Elite Members and Staff: 

  • Members are expected to read and abide by Eliters policy regarding multiple IDs.

  • Obscene language and aggressive trash talking are unacceptable in Eliters.

  • Personal attacks, or the taunting/denigration of members, league or staff are unacceptable.

  • Any harassment of or vocal, public dispute with Eliters staff is unacceptable. TD decisions are final and not open to dispute on the spot. There are channels for the advancement of complaints: any TD will tell you how to use them.

  • Any abuse of Eliters Messenger is unacceptable. Eliters Messenger is for factual tournament communication only, not for chatting or arguing with the TD. If you think the TD has made an error, or are unhappy with anything else, then IM the TD, or call him to a table.

  • The solicitation of YEPs or Membership from other Eliters, whether in the lobbies, game tables, or by IM/email, is expressly forbidden. This makes the Member being solicited very uncomfortable. Occasional, “joking” references will be overlooked.

  • Delay or obstruction of tournament play is not acceptable: players must be on time and must contest their tourney matches expeditiously.

  • Players are expected to be familiar with all Eliters tournament general rules and game-specific rules of the leagues in which they are registered, and to abide by these rules.

  • Players are expected to promptly report all matches they have lost to the tourney page.

  • Any form of cheating is cause for immediate banishment from Eliters. Any attempt to participate in any Tournament or Game offered on Eliters or any associated Play-Sites by means of automatic, macro, programmed, computer-assisted or similar methods, or to otherwise commit fraud with regard to the Site, will result in civil and/or criminal prosecution, termination of your account, and forfeiture of any account balances and all prizes to which you may have been otherwise entitled to.

An extensive list of categories of unacceptable behavior can be found at the List of Violations Help Topic.

A discussion of the penalties for such violations can be found at the Rules Enforcement Help Topic. 



Enforcement of RulesLast Update: 12/31/2011

fiogf49gjkf0d

It is in the best interests of all Eliters, staff and players alike, that we have consistent and logical enforcement of all rules including the Code of Conduct.

Accordingly, we have defined around 50 different categories of rules violations, ranging from such inadvertent problems as No Show in tourneys up to actual, verifiable cheating by players. For each category we have specified a series of enforcement actions that should be undertaken by League and/or Corporate Management.

The ultimate penalty for any repeated violation of League policies and rules would be the termination of the member's account. However, the system provides several notification levels before this happens, beginning with just a "Note on File" and progressing through "Tourney Disqualification", "Final Warning", and various amounts of time in the "Penalty Box", to outright termination "Purge" of account in extreme cases.

Please remember that no action is taken on many violations; especially harassment unless there is documented proof of the violation; using screen shots that must be attached to the Note.

Penalties imposed by TDs during tourneys

Guest Members may not be sent any warnings, depending on the gravity of the violation; they might be subjected to the higher penalty on the first occurrence.

There are two types of penalty box: "League" and "All". League boxes will be used for most offenses, in terms of 3, 7 or 14 days. A player in the League penalty box will be barred from registering in any tournaments hosted by that particular League, but will still be able to participate in tournaments in other Elite Leagues. Players in the all-Leagues penalty box, of course, will be unable to participate in any Eliters tournaments as long as they are boxed.



List of ViolationsLast Update: 12/31/2011

fiogf49gjkf0d

A complete list of violations follows; they cover all Elite Rules including the Code of Conduct Rules.

Please note that not all violations will use the full range of warnings/penalty listed at the Enforcement of Rules Help Topic. Actual enforcement is at the discretion of the VP Member Relations, and will depend upon the severity and frequency of violations, and the provision of documented proof of the violation; using screen shots that now must be attached to the Note.
